We did our area, I was assigned to ICU unit, I did my public areas first, like the bathrooms, waiting room, hallway, trash, nurse's break room kitchen, then my patient rooms, doing check outs first. Daily routine was setting up cart first and getting it ready for next day when done. If I had a problem, I would consult the supervisor for help, and if I finished early we would go help each other. The hardest part was weekends, where we doubled up areas, and sometimes more checkouts. I enjoyed mostly was that unit. I liked working for those nurses because they were nice and kind. I learned how to clean right, which sanitizer was used for bathroom and which one was used for other, and not to use same towel on both. I think it is a good place to work.

REGISTRAR (Former Employee) – Hoxie, AR – June 5, 2018
Lawrence Memorial Hospital is not open to diversity with poor management which has caused the best employees to flee and the others to lose motivational. Most of the staff is very cliquish and mean spirited and will simply have you removed or "run you away," if you don't fit into their circle.
Cafeteria is open for breakfast and lunch hours, flexible and competitive pay for the area
High Acuity patients with not enough staff at times. Really enjoy my co-workers we are a family and work well with each other.The real Issue comes from the higher ups not necessarily the manager, but the people above them.
Family environment with a goal to make all pateints visit the best

I loved everything about working at Lawrence Memorial, we were all family and did what it took to ensure all patients were treated fair and eased them through the process of out patient procedures to being seen in the emergency room.

There's nothing special about this workplace. You have to work weekends we fight over hours with the other coworkers. You have to buy your own meals. Everyone that works there pretty much as been working there for many years
Manager (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – February 22, 2018
Great place to work if you want to be treated poorly. Director of Surgery was allowed to stomp her feet, cuss at employees, make demeaning remarks and lie. Poor example of leadership for sure. The RN's in the surgery department are very caring and try to do the best for their patients. The techs in the sterile processing area are overworked and were treated unfairly. Too much work, not enough tech's. Director would say "is everyone I work with stupid"? her behavior was really uncalled for. When trying to defend the employees, my concerns went unanswered.
I felt way overworked and pressured to cover shifts constantly due to the hospital being understaffed. Some of the management was appreciative of your commitment to patients, but most of them were not.
Enjoyed this job immensely. Loved working w/ records and variety of other tasks.
Medical Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – October 11, 2017
This was a good place to work except my supervisor was ineffective as far as training and fairness to the people working under her. The department head was a little difficult to work with. I had to write down her instructions or she would forget what she actually told me to do. I really enjoyed the variety of tasks that the job entailed. The health benefits weren't bad at all except no vision or dental, We had paid vacations and sick.
Health insurance, enjoyed the variety of tasks, enjoyed most people I worked with.
RN House Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – September 30, 2017
Managed staffing in the 100+ bed hospital. Learned how to staff a larger hospital and helped out in crisis situations. Management was helpful in all situations. The culture was also one of promoting learning. The hardest part was deciding where to send the extra help. The most enjoyable was the entire learning experience.
Friendly coworkers and environment but management are money hungry people who don't care to know about you.

Over all, I am very blessed to have the job I have. I don't work with my managers in the same building but I have to see them once every month and if that's enough for me to not respect them than that really says something. My coworkers were awesome, but we were very very pressured to collect money and we would only hear from our boss on a money making basis.
Great place to work. I had entered done work with getting pre Auth for costly procedures to be authorized by the insurance companies to assure the insurance will pay. I also entered patient information into the computer system so that different treatment to be done. Getting to know the patients that have returned and the challenges was most enjoyable for me.
Feeling like I have helped the patients feel good during the admission process
